Baby Buggy Turns 10! Photos From Their Star Studded Anniversary Gala
Last week during a star-studded event in New York City, Baby Buggy®, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing families in need with essential equipment, clothing, products, and services for children, held its 10th Anniversary Gala on Monday, December 5th at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center and raised over $1,000,000 for their organization.
The highlight from the night A Night of Comedy with Jerry Seinfeld & Friends, featured hilarious standup from Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, and Colin Quinn as well as quick wit from host George Stephanopoulos.
Jessica Seinfeld, the Founder and President of Baby Buggy, co-chaired the event with Ali Wentworth, Kyle MacLachlan, Desiree Gruber, Bart Freundlich and Julianne Moore, and Naomi Watts.
Other board members, friends and celebrities in attendance included Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness, Oprah Winfrey, Gayle King, Bridget Moynahan, Katie Lee, Amy Ryan, Nigel and Cristen Barker, Jeff Gordon and Ingrid Vandebosch, Rosie Pope, Narcisco Rodriguez, Stacey Bendet Eisner, Jill Martin, Wendi Murdoch, Michelle Myers, Adam Glassman, Danny Seo, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Reed and Delphine Krakoff, Emanuele Della Valle, Christiane Lemieux, Beth Buccini, Sarah Easley, Sherrie Rollins Westin, and Stefani Greenfield.
The organization has done amazing things while helping helping families in the United States. Jessica Seinfeld said it best: “I love that this simple idea, putting well-loved items into the hands of others who need them most, has turned into this enduring and essential service for our city and is now spreading across the U.S.”
She has plenty to be proud of! Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared December 5, 2011 as “Baby Buggy Day” in New York City and to commemorate the organization’s 10th Anniversary, the Empire State Building was lit up in Baby Buggy’s signature blue and green.
To date, Baby Buggy has donated more than five million items, including diapers, strollers, bottles, books, and clothing, to families in need. This milestone was made possible by the more than 20,000 volunteers who have given their time over the past decade to sort, clean, and process donations in the Baby Buggy warehouse. The organization now distributes an average of 40,500 new and gently used items to approximately 1,480 children each month and now services six cities nationally: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and Dallas.
